CM50 - One week till the big showdown in Clark!
CM 50 Ultra - Just 1 more week to go to the final SuperTrail race of the 2016 Asia Trail Master season in Clark, Philippines!
It is going to be a make-or-break race for several top ranked men if they still want to become this year's Asia Trail Master champion. Their task is clear: beat Jan Nilsen in the 50 miles race to Miyamit Falls and back. The pressure will be pretty much on home favourite and already a double winner of this race, Manolito Divina. But last year's ATM champion Arief Wismoyono has not surrendered yet and is coming to defend his title in style. And what about dark horse Xu Xiutao, a fantastic winner in Korea 50k and determined to become champion! They are only a few names of the strong male line-up for next week's big event.
In the women's CM 50 race, all eyes will be cast on local favourite Majo Liao, who can consolidate her second place in this year's championship behind Tahira Najmunisaa. Expect a lot of changes to occur in the rest of the top 10 still by the end of the season. As you can see below, it is very tight for third place in the women's ranking at the moment with Patricia Shindy from Indonesia currently holding it.
Take a look at the current top 15 going into the Philippines' SuperTrail:
